Juan Pablo Galavis: Gay Version of 'The Bachelor' Would Not Be 'a Good Example for Kids' - AUDIO


Juan Pablo Galavis, TV's 'Bachelor', was asked by Sean Daly at The TV Page what he would think about producers creating a gay version of the show.

Says Galavis:

"I don’t think it is a good example for kids to watch that on TV."

Galavis then points out a manager or pr person at the interview named Peter, noting that Peter is gay and he respects him but still can't fathom two men doing the same thing that a man and woman do.

Continues Galavis:

"...Obviously people have their husband and wife and kids and that is how we are brought up. Now there is fathers having kids and all that, and it is hard for me to understand that too in the sense of a household having people. Two parents sleeping in the same bed and the kid going into bed. It is confusing in a sense. But I respect them because they want to have kids. They want to be parents. So it is a scale. Where do you put it on the scale?  Where is the thin line to cross or not? You have to respect everybody’s desires and way of living. But it would be too hard for TV."

Finally, to sum up his remarks, Galavis calls gay people "more pervert in a sense."

  2. Marriage should of course be restricted to one man, one woman, and their studio audience. The way God intended.

  3. Strait Bachelor is not a good example for kids to watch that on TV.

  5. Isn't that show bordering on polygamy?

    How is a bunch of women competing for love a good example??

  6. America reality television needs to be the standard bearer of what is moral and just and this fame whore is just the perfect spokesperson for family values......
    He is a piece of work. Keep it real Juan. I bet you cannot wait to tell your spawn about how their daddy spent time with 20 plus females, broke some hearts, pretended to be interested in their vacuous lives and then got to pick a lucky winner to be dad's "lucky lady".
    My head hurts thinking how wrong this is but at least gay people weren't involved.....save the children indeed!

  7. That he is a moron ought to surprise nobody. The entire 'Bachelor' franchise is a cesspool of idiocy.

  8. Ladies? He's all yours, if you want him. And can handle someone who can insult a man to his face with a big, big smile and then claim that he respects that individual...

  9. Such a pretty house, too bad there isn't anyone home.

    A dude that would go on reality tv to find love is vapid, at best.
    His opinions mean dog sh#t!

  10. is his show on pbs? never knew the bachelor was children's educational programming.

    yes, let the children watch this jackhat and 27 women, sorta like traditional marriage in the bible, concubines and all...

  11. He's right, the show is idiotic and mean spirited.

  12. This time tomorrow he will retract his statement & "apologize".

  13. As always, "think of the children!" And the a-hole interviewer doesn't even challenge any of it, even in a gentle way, in fact he goes along with it.

  14. I see Dumb strikes, again.

  15. He's on a SHOW where women are paraded in front of him for his choosing. I don't think THAT is a goo example for kids to watch. Women are not cattle. THAT is perverted. Oh IRONY.

  16. this jerk has the nerve to lecture anyone on what constitutes a wholesome "family" tv show? Honey, you are no Captain Kangaroo.

    Posted by: Chicklets | Jan 18, 2014 12:25:41 PM

  17. Well, at least he's not completely mean spirited or homophobic-but he definitely needs to spend more time around gay people to get his preconceptions debunked. I'll admire him a lot more if he does something like that instead of living in his pretty little bubble. (And yes, as others have commented: nothing like a man looking for love on tv to lecture others about love and morality!)

  18. @Nick
    Well said.

    Calling this 'reality' is like Republicans calling themselves the party of Lincoln while yelling secession.
    Or Scott Lively calling himself a follower of Jesus while promoting the murder of LGBT.

  19. wait, what? I am just devastated! I SOOOO value the opinion of a vacuous (look it up Juan Pablo, it has more than 3 letters in it)celebrity whore. Here is an individual who thinks it's desirable to televise a COMPETITION for his future spouse. And I give a rat's ass what this idiot thinks about my family? Believe me, I would NEVER allow my children to watch his sorry, pathetic show.

  20. My god he's gorgeous. Too bad there's nothing upstairs.

  21. It's funny because I was listening to my fav radio station the other day and they were gushing how nice Juan Pablo came across, let's see if they have a change of heart when this breaks seeing as the host of the show have been pro-equality and gay rights in the past...well except that one chick whose from south carolina but she's usually an idiot anyway.

  22. Says the single man with a kid who dropped his ex and is now whoring around with a house full of women, looking for his next piece.

    He's a Norman Rockwell painting come to life.

  23. I hope there will never be a gay versio, since the straight version is so horrible, it should be canceled already like majority of 'reality' television.
    The current show is good example for kids? In what way? It's a trash show.

  24. Funny how ABC was getting sued a few years ago because their show "The Bachelor" had no bachelor of color in over 20 seasons and when they finally do he's as white passing as possible. Seriously if you told me this guy was white with English routes and his name was Stewart, I'd believe it.
